    I have been working at GiG Gaming Innovation Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great perks - lunch, fun colleagues, fun activities, gym, health insurance, middle management is better than the previous reign.

    Cons

    Two bad CTOs in the period of 3 years. - currently no CTO so all decisions are left to the new middle management.

    Previous middle management did an absolute disaster with the Tech department.

    Useless HR Department as they do only what C-level tells them to do.

    Super mega office politics for reign in the Tech department.

    Below industry standard pay to hard working people and over the top extravagant pay for new people who still have to prove themselves. - Company always says they don't have the budget.
    Meanwhile, some employees have a cushy job because they keep them around even though they are redundant, and these people are very very expensive.

    Continuous restructuring for the last 2 years and getting nowhere near the desired effect.

    Directives and priorities shift daily.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to do hard decisions, firing bad people is not a bad thing, and stick with a directive.

    I have been working at GiG Gaming Innovation Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch and most of the time nice colleagues

    Cons

    Management and some weird behaviour with some employees. It’s depending of what is your nationality and your friends you can get some advantages than others won’t if you know the right person. Some new employees can get more voice and power because they were friends by who hired them (referral bonus) but not because of their skills and it can be tricky to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen more your employees

    Pros

    Great benefits, free food, and it's fun to go to into work.

    Things were tough for a time, but senior management have acted on a lot of feedback and there has been a noticeable improvement.

    Cons

    Company has not perfected being both large and fully agile.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take feedback and improve on communication.

    Pros

    Company works hard to promote a positive culture and does very well to support its employees. Has very clear and ambitious objectives.

    Cons

    Execution not as good as it can be. Has its fingers in many pies, resulting in somewhat siloed tech departments.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage cross pollination across teams.

    I have been working at GiG Gaming Innovation Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Perks such as parking, food, gym benefit. Generally good and supportive colleagues. Great company events and programmes.

    Cons

    I really feel the company is out of control. Good people are leaving and people very insecure. Many teams seem like they're in crisis and aren't clear on what the priorities are, strategy is very poor and constantly changing. C level management are clesrly inexperienced and siloed making decisions which people don't agree with or fully understand. There is a lot of disengagement right now.

    Advice to Management

    You have every opportunity to make a success of GiG. Act now to focus on people before all the good ones leave. CEO needs to prioritise work more, his judgment is questionable.

    I worked at GiG Gaming Innovation Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a lovely environment - a beautiful place to work with free lunch every day, a gym and in general a feeling of community

    Cons

    In the department I worked, my questions weren’t encouraged - my talking was deemed a waste of time. They didn’t seem to understand the maltese culture at all. I’m aware its not the whole company, as some maltese work great in their teams. But where i worked one person was given way too much importance and her rule was all, even though she wasn’t the head. The head of department was great, i think she just couldn’t actually lead as she wanted because of this person

    Advice to Management

    Watch out who you let have influence. Cultural differences shouldn’t be an issue. Suppliers i’ve worked with all complain about this person as do other employees
